Dear LK,

I am testing a new device driver and have found that one one machine it does
 not receive any interrupts. I am stumped by this problem and wonder if
 anyone had any advice before I start to take things apart blindly.

Machines test where everything worked: kernels 2.4.18-10 and 2.4.18-24.8.0
 on athlon based PCs

Machine where interrupts failed to appear: kernel 2.4.18-3 on a pentium 4.

I register the interrupt on open with

My handler looks like

static void pi_int_handler(int irq, void *dev_id,struct pt_regs *regs){
u32 event;
        if(event & PI_STAGE_ALLINTS){
                if(event & PI_STAGE_GPINT){

On the dodgy machine I see the driver and card working fine except for the
 missing interrupts. The variable pi_stage.ints_all is never incremented and
 /proc/interrupts never reports any interrupts. On all machines the
 conditions that generate the interrupts do occur.

It looks like on this one machine that interrupts are never received by the

Is it possible that differences between the BIOSs on the machines could cause
 this? (ie my card is init'd differently so on the bad machine the ints are
 never generated or received).

Any suggestions?

Thanks SA
